A wiki is a web application which allows individuals to collaboratively create and edit web-based content. The most famous version of the wiki is the open-sourced encyclopedia, Wikipedia.

This workshop will provide an overview of some of the educational applications of wikis.

We will focus on two topics:

  • Use of the Blackboard wiki tool
  • Wikipedia editing assignments
